God and Creation (Continuing Education Course)

September 5, 2018 (6:30pm - 8:30pm)

The Fall 2018 course in the Institute's ongoing Continuing Education Series will be "God and Creation."

What does it mean to be created? The goal of this class is to ponder this question in all its ontological meaning, considering both Scripture and Tradition. Included in this question is the nature of the creator God (who he is and what he is like) and how he relates to his creation, especially, to the human person, created male and female and made in his image. We will seek the Church's teaching on creation first through the writings of the Church Fathers as synthesized in the work of Thomas Aquinas, then through the philosophers of the Enlightenment such as Descartes, Bacon, and Locke, and finally through the work of recent theologians such as Joseph Ratzinger, Alexander Schmemann, Louis Bouyer, and Stratford Caldecott.

This course can be taken toward renewal requirements for VCEA licensure. Numerous high schools in the Archdiocese of Washington accept the course for CEU credits.
